Mind maps

In many situations, mind maps are significant in my composition process. When I start a piece, I would think of a point of origin, unpack it bit by bit, start writing a map out of it, and draw networks and connections around what comes out. This unlocks the space of conceiving the music (sometimes directly, but mostly not). I had to decide when to stop, set it aside, and start creating the real thing. While not heard in the music per se, I find that this process adds spatiality to the work in question — the piece is never one-dimensional in nature.
